Recommendations for Sledders

For your personal safety, please follow these simple rules when sledding:

  • The sled run is completely closed after 10 p.m. (lights are also turned off at 10 o'clock)
  • Only stop and wait at designated waiting zones, and never stop near curves.
  • Only cross the sled run where there is clear visibility.
  • Whenever the sled run has been busy, ruts may have been created on the surface. Please adjust your speed to match the surface conditions.
  • Always hold onto your sled's rope to avoid unnecessarily endangering your fellow sledders or losing your sled.
  • To truly enjoy your ride, you will also need to wear appropriate clothing. We especially recommend ski goggles, a scarf, cap, ski pants or spats, gloves, sturdy boots - though no ski boots. Children ages 6 and under should always ride on a parent's sled! Our tip: Sledding with a helmet is always safer!
  • Be considerate of other sledders. Behave in ways that do not endanger or harm others.
  • Alcohol impairs sledding just as it does driving. Drug use of any kind increases reaction times and reduces your ability to evaluate dangerous situations.
  • Sledding on ski pistes is dangerous and prohibited.
  • Always obey closures and warning signs.
  • Obtain the latest reports on snow and weather conditions (Wildkogel Lifts SnowPhone: +43 6565 6205).

 

If you have had an accident and need help, posted on each lighting mast is the phone number for mountain rescue (140) as well as a number that gives your exact location. Secure the accident site the best you can and warn approaching sledders. Rescue costs are based on a set list of charges.

 

We wish you a fun-filled, accident-free sledding expedition!
